Dear Haiku community,
Some years ago I found a pc next to the rubbish container while talking the dog for a walk. It was a Windows XP machine that I happily turned into a Haiku machine. It has a Pentium 4 at 1.4 GHz and 2 GB RAM.
The system works great, but I do not know if it will be powerful enough to keep everything running fine (i.e., update after update). The reason is that when I enter YouTube with WebPositive, I can watch videos, but the system seems to be under heavy load and audio and video get interleaved. I thought that it was because WebPositive is still under development and with aspects to polish. However, a friend of mine installed Haiku in an Intel Core 2 Duo machine, with 4GB RAM and that same test runs flawlessly. Thus, I think that my machine might not be powerful enough for Haiku, especially after it gets new capabilities. In other words, I fear that I will not be able to do that kind of tasks (e.g., watch YouTube videos) even after finishing the development of WebPositive. What do you think?
Thank you in advance for your help. Kind regards.
